Who we are
Kidasha works to end the abuse and exploitation of children living in chronic poverty in Nepal. We focus on children in crisis situations who are beyond the reach of existing services, including child victims of sexual abuse and exploitation, street children, working children, trafficked children, and children living in urban slums, to improve their wellbeing, development and opportunities.
We have been working in Nepal for 20 years, during which time we have developed unique expertise in supporting the most disadvantaged and marginalised children living in urban poverty. Our small team in Nepal works in partnership with local organisations to develop and deliver quality projects which have a sustained impact for children and families at a grassroots level.
We actively engage with local government agencies and the wider community to improve mainstream services, change attitudes and reduce exclusion and discrimination. Our approach differs from that of other overseas charities in that we aim to create lasting change for the most vulnerable children and not simply deliver short-term benefits to as many as possible.
